What are 5 things you’re grateful for today?
This is a quote from Ann Voskamp from my post, Grateful, on November 28, 2019, along with my thoughts.
“Little nails and a steady hammer can rebuild a life – eucharisteo precedes the miracle.”
Selections from One Thousand Gifts: Finding Joy in What Really Matters by Ann Voskamp (2012, Zondervan; author copyright). The quote is from page 31. The “Interior photography” is also by Ann Voskamp.
In April 2013 I wrote, The goal is to always find something to praise – however tiny. It’s interesting as I type this, I recall such vivid images of beauty outside the windows during difficult days. I didn’t think of myself as having that visual sense before. Now it is appearing in my poetry, as a natural part of life.
And today’s question from The Team at WordPress.com: What are 5 things you’re grateful for today? Since it is very cold today, my first thoughts are: our home, power, water and food, warmth, lights. And I can blog – which leads to health, vision, computer and internet, Karl’s help, WordPress.com and community.
I do not take anything for granted.
Once you begin with gratitude, the list grows . . .
As I wrote yesterday, teamwork.
Given the weather, I also think of Habitat for Humanity “We build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.” And many other good works.
for a short time
sunny and cold
branches in wind
and then the day
grew grey as it
ended and Winter
here for awhile
